    Missing Knick-Knack - A Memory Game
    This game is a lot of fun for all ages. Even 3- and 4-year-olds will be able to participate. (They already have good memories!)

    Collect various knick-knacks and small items from around the house and lay them on a tray…things like a spoon, a pencil stub, shell, hair clip, leaf, toy car, etc. (If very young children are playing, watch out for small items that could be a choking hazard.)

    Place the tray on a table and have players sit around it so that all can see. After studying the collection for a minute or two, everyone closes their eyes and one child is chosen to remove one object and hide it behind his back. The others then look and try to figure out what is missing. The first to guess the missing object has the next turn.

    To make sure everyone has a chance to guess, players should raise their hands when they have the answer instead of shouting it out!
